Well it is officially summer time, and it is also National Dairy Month. So today, lets talk about ICE CREAM!
First of all some “Cold” facts about Ice Cream:
• Ice cream as we know it emerged in 17th century France.
• The cone didn’t appear until 1904, when a Syrian waffle maker at the St. Louis World Fair began rolling his pastries into horns to help an ice cream vendor who had run out of dishes.
The average American eats about 20 quarts of ice cream a year — the world’s highest per capita consumption.
• Top selling flavor: vanilla, with 30 percent of the market; followed by chocolate with 19 percent.
• It takes 5.8 pounds of whole milk and one pound of cream to make one gallon of ice cream.
Sometimes this glorious dessert just hits the spot. So, do you have a favorite flavor? Or a brand? For me I like anything that has peanut butter in it, love the sherbets and I think bubble gum flavors are totally underrated. The Cotton Candy Blizzard from Dairy Queen is also pretty tasty. Share your favorite flavors!
